Deliver Better Care to More Patients
Healthcare providers face many challenges. They need to improve patient outcomes, reduce the cost of care, reduce complications and unnecessary re-admissions, while at the same time extending their organization’s brand. Chronic disease patients account for the bulk of business. Yet patient outcomes largely depend on their ability to properly follow their prescribed treatment plan and their daily health behaviors.
Meanwhile payers are migrating to value-based models that pay for performance rather than transactional volume. For this reason, healthcare providers need to engage patients beyond the point of care to support healthy lifestyle behaviors and improve treatment adherence.
With NexJ Connected Wellness, providers can meaningfully engage chronic disease patients by empowering them with skills, knowledge, and confidence to actively participate in managing their own health and wellness.
Chronic Care Management (CCM) Program from Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)
Since January 1, 2015 the CMS pays providers for managing Medicare FFS (fee-for-service) patients with 2 or more chronic conditions. Providers can bill $42 USD per month for each patient receiving chronic care management. Care can be billed for care team activities totaling at least 20 minutes of non-face-to-face “chronic care management services” each month, such as health coaching.
